This is Part 2 of a series on the insipid “PC does Whaaat?!” campaign, the unethical marketing behind it, and the problems with selling things no one wants. Part 1 was more of a rant on the slimy marketing behaviours of the CMOs of Microsoft, Intel, Dell, Lenovo, and HP, and what they will do to mislead consumers. This instalment is is much more serious and covers the actual root of the problems facing the PCs, why no one is willing to change it, and what could be done if any of the players really meant what they say.
